If this is in your top ten you degrade all your reviews from previous years. There are ten better shows from each year between 1968-1974 at the very least and more like 50 from 1972, for example.

However, this is a decent show from a year that had potential. Between Minglewood and Terrapin I was neither bored nor thrilled.

Worth the stars just for that. (To be super picky there is some diginoise during LIG.)

They Love Each Other through Playing In The Band is very good GD.

Subject: Unbelievable.
Easily one of my 10 favorite shows.

I just started to listen to the GD channel on XM and heard about this site... instantly, I wanted to hear the first show I ever went to... it was this 1/31/78 show at the uptown. great memories and a great show!

This is a wonderful representation of the Greatful Dead. You can hear the patience that can only come from playing night after night to an auidience of one.

This show was surprisingly good (I don't particularly like 1978 as a whole), and a lot of the songs that sounded best to me are not songs that I'm terribly interested in hearing all of the time.

For instance, Minglewood really smoked, and Keith sounded interested in playing. Ditto for They Love Each Other. The Scarlet/Fire (which is a typical favorite), while not the best ever, was high-quality throughout. Even Good Lovin at the end was fun to listen to.

I'd recommend this show if you aren't looking for a way out-there vibe, but just some good songs well played.

Exellent both in performance and sound quality. Thanks Charlie.

Another great show from early '78. The January shows are particularly good and they lead up to the great performances of 2/3 and 2/5 of that year. A bright and focused sound throughout, especially during Terrapin Station. I wouldn't go without any show from Jan. '78.
